Actually, you summed up the issue eloquently in your post earlier. One needs to understand and accept the constraints of operating in and fighting an insurgency.

The longer it sustains, the greater the alienation. Hence, a political resolution remains an imperative.

The way I see it, he's disgruntled because he wasn't given a citation or some perks for his work in relation to a peer who was for doing the same work, supposedly.

Guys could anyone of you tell me about the RAPID divisions in the IA? I want to know more, more than what a quick search on google tells me. My interests in the subject arose due to a close relative commanding one of these divs.

Thanks in advance !
 
Bravest of the Brave-9 PARA SF A.K.A "Mountain Rats": India's best warfighters combating terrorism in the high reaches of Kashmir, scaling peaks and doing impeccable operations even behind the enemy lines. No Indian Special Operations Unit come close to the legend that 9 PARA commands in terms of experience and battle record with their noteworthy operations being the Mandhol Gun Raid, Defence of Poonch and Akhnoor, the capture of Zulu Ridge in Kargil and the latest being the 2016 Surgical Strikes in PoK. It is the first unit to gain "Commando" status in the Indian Army, first to gain "Special Force" status, has exercised with almost 40+ Special Operations Teams around the world like SAS, SEALS, DELTA, Green Berets, Sayeret Matakal, Spetsnaz and more.

Their motto "Who Cares, Who Wins" and the war cry is Durge Mata ki Jai , Mangla Mata ki Jai and Jai Baba Bholenath. They are India's Best of the Best with the most number of Ashok Chakras (4) in the Parachute Regiment Family. It has also borne some of the legendary Special Forces Operatives like Major Walia, Captain Jasrotia, Paratrooper Sanjor Chetri and more. 9 PARA also created other Special Operations Teams in India like secretive Special Group, 10 PARA, 3 PARA, 11 PARA, NSG and 31 Rashtriya Rifles ( Commando ).

Fun Fact: India procured C-130J Strategic Airlifters from USA after 9 PARA SF Officers advised the MoD and DAC during a joint exercise with British SAS where they realized its potential.














 
"Mustaffa of the Desert Warfare"- 10 PARA SF A.K.A "Desert Scorpions"

Known earlier as 10 PARA Commando (cdo) , 10 PARA was formed after splitting the "Bravo" Team of 9 PARA Commando to form a new Desert Warfare Unit on July 1, 1967 to carry out long-distance desert raids behind enemy lines paving way for Infantry Attacks in a similar way as the British SAS did in North Africa during World War-2. Based at Jodhpur, 10 PARA is now one of the most combat experienced units in Indian Army with a Detachment deployed in Kashmir for Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Insurgency Operations and an additional team in Delhi.

Some of the most notable operations by 10 PARA including the infamous Chachro and Islamkot Raid of 1971 which was led by Lt Col (Then) His Highness Bhawani Singh, King of Jaipur. 10 PARA has also contributed to multiple Counter Terror Ops in Kashmir for which it has won many accolades and distinctions.

of how India got hold of Heavy Water when it was facing sanctions for it's 1974 test - both incidents of the 80s.
I have read about it in gardian and even bookmarked it. Maybe 5-6 years ago. But now its gone. Something about a ship going missing and turning up in some scrap somewhere

Especial handling equipment was flown in to cart it away by the cia directly from the ship because the cargo was too hot

A large amount of cargo meant for Pakistan from NK has been confiscated by IN and USN and never publicised.
